College football is upon us so let's go and get some winners. I hope to help you out best I can with my locks of the weekend. And, away we go !!!!!!!!!!
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2ND
WESTERN MICHIGAN +22 OVER MICHIGAN ST
MSU QB Payton Thorne is solid but he is without stars RB K.Walker and WR J. Nailor who have moved on to the NFL. This just seems like too many points for Mel Tucker's squad to cover.
33 MICHIGAN ST
ILLINOIS +3 OVER INDIANA
How about ex-Syracuse QB Tommy DeVito's performance last week against Wyoming. DeVito was 27 of 37 and 2 TD's passing and I expect a similar job against the Hoosiers.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3RD
MICHIGAN -30 OVER COLORADO ST
No H. Haskins for Michigan means no problem with sophomore Blake Corum in the backfield. Corum had 1100 combined yards last season and Jim Harbaugh's squad won their opener last season by 33.
13 COLORADO ST
OREGON +17 OVER GEORGIA
Bo Nix makes his return to SEC country and the Ducks stunned Ohio St in their opener last year and why not this season against a Georgia team that graduated a slew of players to the NFL..
HARRY'S HIDDEN GEM GAME
UTSA +4.5 OVER HOUSTON
This UTSA team returns plenty of starters on a offense that was 12th in the country in points scored and in yards gained a season ago. The Roadrunners also return their starting QB Frank Harris and their leading rusher and receiver.
HARRY'S 7 POINT TEASER
OHIO ST -9.5 OVER NOTRE DAME
ARKANSAS +1 OVER CINCINNATI
The Irish are inexperienced at QB, meanwhile Buckeyes QB CJ Stroud had 44 TDS last year. Cincinnati lost a ton of skill players to the NFL that made the college playoffs. The Hogs QB KJ Jefferson had a combined 27 TDS a season ago and on defense LB Bumper Pool is also back and was the leader in tackles for the Razorbacks with 125.
39 OHIO ST
24 NOTRE DAME
